Re: Down under in the last millenium

Nice photos! Wish I got to see those critters in person.
At first glance, your first three "Diplodactylus tesselatus" are actually Strophurus intermedius, and your unknown geckos A and B are Diplodactylus tesselatus.

Matt,
That was fantastic! Is it possible that the third Phyllomedusa bicolor is P. vaillanti? Just a gut feeling. The P. bicolor, Bufo margaritifera or Bolitoglossa would have made the trip for me.

Hey Monklet,
It is a division, although not all animals I have seen from this local have it.... and if I remember correctly right now, a divided anal plate is not the end-all-be-all...

Don't mean to be a snoop, but have you been tagged more than once recently?
Would you care to outline you bites... don't mean for you to be the cautionary whale, but it might help...
Thanks,
Pete
